Pareidolia is defined as “the tendency to perceive a specific, often meaningful image in a random or ambiguous visual pattern.”
In other words…you’re seeing things!
But don’t get alarmed, we all do it sometimes. Like when you see faces or animals in clouds, or on buildings, or on cracked sidewalks. Or maybe even in your food or your coffee.
Are you ready to see some really good examples of pareidolia?
Let’s take a look!
1. I feel like I’m being yelled at.
You see it, don’t you?

2. Just like a little kitty.
Well, isn’t that cute?
3. I saw what you did!
Yes, you’re being judged.
4. This is so cool!
I don’t think this will ever happen again. EVER.
5. A ghost rising out of the coffee.
I like this one a lot.
6. You haven’t lost it…yet.
Yes, I see it, too!

7. Trying to escape its shell.
Where do you think you’re going, friend?
8. This is not a good sign.
You better run for it!
9. A big thumps up from this eggplant!
You’re doing a great job!
10. This one is kinda scary.
Stay away from that tree.
11. There’s no doubt about that.
Well, aren’t you a cute little guy?
12. I think there’s a frog on your porch.
Nothing to be alarmed about, I’m just letting you know.
Now I’m gonna be seeing things everywhere…
How about you?
